Unboxing Storyline Fairy Tales

Rob Kalajian unboxing 0 Comments

Having just written a review for Storyline: Fairy Tales, I figured I’d take the time do take some unboxing photos. The game doesn’t contain much except cards and tokens, but the production value is excellent. One of the coolest things about Storyline is how the Narrator Cards and Story Cards combine to look like pages in a book. Combine this …

Triple Triad on Mobile

Rob Kalajian digital 0 Comments

I’ve been a fan of Triple Triad ever since I first played it in Final Fantasy 8. I even bought some physical cards back in the day, though I have no idea whatever happened to them. I hit a bit of nostalgia for the game when I wrote about Card Master over on Purple Pawn the other day. Card Master …

Review – Cthulhu Realms

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

A few days ago White Wizard Games provided me with a review code for the Android version of Cthulhu Realms, the Lovecraftian re-theme of Star Realms. Eager to give the game a shot, I immediately downloaded the game and dug in. If you’ve played Star Realms, there’s nothing really new here gameplay wise, yet the amount of detail put into …

Awaiting Pai Sho

Rob Kalajian tabletop 0 Comments

Ever since gamers saw Pai Sho played on Nickelodean’s Avatar: The Last Airbender, they’ve been coming up with ways to play. Pai Sho, in a playable form, has come a long way. There’s been many rules sets, and even tile sets, and lots of people have made their own boards and pieces. You can find a bunch on Etsy, but …

Review – New BCW Products

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Every once and a while BCW shoots me some samples of their new products to take a look at. It’s nice, seeing as I’m a huge fan of their line of stuff, and we can always use some new deck boxes, card protectors, and folios in the house. This time around they sent me a deck box filled with 80 …

Total War – WARHAMMER Stream

Rob Kalajian streaming 0 Comments

Today I was lucky enough to receive and early access copy of Total War: WARHAMMER for review/streaming. I did a quick stream of the game’s Campaign Mode using the Empire and running through the tutorial. I’ve exported the video to YouTube. It runs about 19 minutes long, and you can watch me play while having no idea what the hell …

The Long Road Ahead

Rob Kalajian news 0 Comments

After yesterday’s post I decided to sit down and take inventory of everything that’s come in recently. In line with my estimates, I’ve got 50 games on the dot that need to get played and reviewed. Again, this doesn’t include games already played, digital titles, toys, or gaming accessories. There’s a long road ahead, but I’ve already started planning r_day, …

Drowning

Rob Kalajian news 0 Comments

I’ve got a lot of games to review. A lot. I took a look at my review queue and counted 23 unplayed games on there. That’s actually not too bad for me. It means I’ve gotten a lot off the list in a good amount of time. Unfortunately I haven’t updated the list since PAX. I took home 13 new …

Review – Spellweaver

Rob Kalajian review 0 Comments

Having just written about the release of the two new Spellweaver DLC packs, I realized I had never gotten around to actually reviewing the game. Spellweaver feels like a mix of Hearthstone, HEX, and Magic: The Gathering. It’s free-to-play, but supports microtransactions and DLC packs if you’re looking to expand your collection quickly. Of course you can unlock cards through …
